Living in the real world AND going to college.

Is really like…

– You’re older than most of your classmates.

-College stories and gossip do not phase you. They’re just annoying.

-You have very, very little money. So, if you get hungry or thirsty you can’t just go get something. The last thing you want is campus food, anyways.

-Constantly need to figure out how to get back and forth to school.

-Have to stay on campus several hours a day. Can’t just go home. It takes away gas and time.

-If you have to cancel something for personal/financial reasons — you’re the bad guy.

-Many people don’t understand that you don’t live on campus — and don’t want a social life with people you will never see again.

-People just assume you’re the same age as everyone else — and live on campus

-Much older people call you a kid. You don’t know if it’s because they see everyone that way — or if you should be offended because you’re not.

-Hardly see your partner. Schedules make it difficult.

-Don’t know if you will graduate.
